Light-headedness and fainting???

No matter how much water I consume I still get light-headed. Like all the time. When I sit, lay down, or stand. Or even look up and then down again. And sometimes I faint too. I don't know what's wrong with me and I'm going to the doctor soon I just want to know some information until then. Help?

  • hypoglycemia does this, low blood sugar does this (laymans for hypoglycemia), low iron does this, low b-12 does this... you are going to need a blood test to figure it out, basically.

  • I tested my blood pressure a couple days ago and it was 77/61. Then about half an hour ago it was 87/71... Ouch.
